Steven Pippin has made improvised cameras in the most unlikely places. For this work he turned a public photo-booth into a crude pin-hole camera which he used to produce a self-portrait.
Pin-hole cameras need lengthy exposures, so Pippin had to stand still outside the booth for quite some time.
He recalls how 'standing almost to attention in amongst the normal coming and going of pedestrians became a perplexing ordeal and seemed more problematic than the actual conversion
of the booth itself'.
